Dir. Maria Schrader, Germany, 2015/16, 106 min, color, digital

In her haunting and subtly contemporary film, starring Josef Hader, Maria Schrader follows Austrian-Jewish writer Stefan Zweig's move from Europe into his South-American exile.
There is a banquet given in his honor in Rio, he takes part at the P.E.N.Congress in Buenos Aries, and spends some time in New York. In the fall of 1941 he and his wife Lotte settle in the Brazilian city of Petropolis. This is where he finishes his famous "The Royal Game" (Schachnovelle). In early 1942 the couple commits suicide.

STEFAN ZWEIG: FAREWELL TO EUROPE was Austria's entry for the 2018 Academy Awards and won the People's Choice Award for Best European Movie at the 2017 European Film Awards. The film was released theatrically in over 15 countries.
